The Healers Café

Hi, it's Manon Bolliger (facilitator and retired naturopath with 30+ years of practice) and I want to welcome you to the Healers Cafe. I am so excited to be doing this series of interviews and what I'll be doing is, is asking all kinds of healthcare practitioners, doctors, healers of all types, to really share with all of you their experience, why they became healers, what called them what they think about this being a healer thing. Is it, a thing? Who's really healing in this, what they've experienced from their their interaction with clients and patients and what the takeaways and understanding of what the process of healing is all about and the process of life. So that's the essence of what I'm doing. I'm hoping that this will serve also for patients that have issues and are looking for different ways of approaching it. * De-Registered, revoked & retired after 30+ years of practice.

In this episode of The Healers Café, Manon Bolliger (facilitator and retired naturopath with 30+ years of practice) speaks with Jonathan Damonte about his homeopathy course online.

Highlights from today's episode include:

Jonathan Damonte

what we gain from learning about the fact that remedies have different or opposite symptoms, is that they can have different grades in those symptoms. And so, the grade is a four out of possible five, for thirst. And yet, in the opposite symptom, it's a lower grade only, or one. So, the argument is much stronger for this remedy, because it has a higher grade.

 

Jonathan Damonte 16:01

So, we have all these different aspects of the symptoms. And these are all excellent and reliable symptoms. In fact, the highlighted ones are especially reliable. So, it makes your job in terms of determining what is the useful symptom for prescribing so simple.

 

Jonathan Damonte

Well, I mean, if I was a massage therapist, or chiropractor, or cranial sacral practitioner, I absolutely want to add homeopathy, because as you say, that emotional component that we are stuck in, physiologically is so easily worked through when you add homeopathy.

 

ABOUT JONATHAN DAMONTE:

Firstly, a Homeopath and then a Bowen Therapist, two modalities of alternative medicine. I have been in practice sine 1997 first as Classical Homeopath and from 2001 as a Bowen Therapist as well.
Born in London, England where he lived before moving to Toronto, Canada at the age of 18. Jonathan’s father, John Damonte was a Homeopath and respected teacher based in London. He taught many Homeopaths from 1962 till his death in 1975. Several of his students established schools of Homeopathy and he along wth Thomas Maugham founded the Royal Society of Homeopaths in the UK. Raymond Edge, a graduate of Misha Norland’s School of Devon, opened The School of Homeopathic Medicine in Toronto Canada in 1995. He became my teacher in turn, this was a wonderful connection to my father and his teachings. I’d known Misha while he studied with my father and I was always very fond of him as a child so the re-connection was quite wonderful.

Core purpose/passion: Health is all about freedom and in that context we must create the space for an individual to do so. Whether it's in the freeing of their patterns or in the freedom to choose a style of medicine.

In this episode of The Healers Café, Manon Bolliger (facilitator and retired naturopath with 30+ years of practice) speaks with Dr. Robb Kelly, PhD

For the transcript and full story go to: https://www.drmanonbolliger.com/Dr-Robb-Kelly 

 

Highlights from today's episode include:

So, everything is going good. We got the wife back, just got in a great job, amazing, fantastic and then we self-sabotage…alcoholics and addicts for what they can see as no reason. Well, the reason is childhood trauma, and it's still stored, because we've got to deal with it.

that's what we do with trauma, it becomes our comfort zone, it becomes our buffer, even though I know it's painful, and it's going to be horrible. It becomes the only thing that I know, in times of trouble. So, the idea is, is to address that, to smash that box and make sure you can't get back in.

But right now, it's people often ask me, you know, what's the answer? And the answer is dialogue and education are relative because people don't understand that alcoholism is a disease, so is drug addiction and that it's a predisposition, we don't have a choice over this. So when we take our first drink, it sets up that cycle internally.

 

ABOUT DR. ROBB KELLY, PhD:

Dr. Robb Kelly, PhD is a sought-after recovery expert who believes in treating the causes of addiction and not the symptoms. Dr. Kelly has appeared on such shows as The Doctors, Eye Opener, Good Morning Texas, and Kens5 morning news.  A frequent contributor to radio and print interviews including The Jim Bohannon show, Miracles in Recovery, USA Today, and participated in McLean Hospital’s & Harvard Medical School; study on the stigma associated with mental illness.

In this episode of The Healers Café, Manon Bolliger (facilitator and retired naturopath with 30+ years of practice) speaks with Jonathan Damonte about homeopathy

For the transcript and full story go to: https://www.drmanonbolliger.com/jonathan-damonte    

 

Highlights from today's episode include:

Jonathan Damonte

A disease is a label for the set of symptoms, the characteristic symptoms of an illness. Whereas for homeopath, a symptom is the expression of the individual's effort to maintain their health, and therefore, it's the expression of their disease, not the disease they have.

 

Jonathan Damonte 16:01

So, I just want to really say, is that homeopathy is a system of medicine, that buoys…that lifts your own vital healing ability. And therefore, the full resolution is still at play, rather than taking part of your symptom away, so that you just manage to get through but really healing. And what a wonderful way to support an immune system than to guide it rather than overloaded with super nutrients and nutraceuticals and such.

 

Jonathan Damonte

that became a compendium of symptoms that we would use in which to match the disease person who has those symptoms with a medicine that could produce those symptoms. Homeopathy meaning, similar suffering. So, the substance that can produce the problem is used to treat the problems.

In this episode of The Healers Café, Manon Bolliger (facilitator and retired naturopath with 30+ years of practice) speaks with Holly Howe about learning to listen to my body and the messages it’s sending me. Realizing I have the power to create the radiant health I desire.

Holly Howe So, a lot of people come for the gut health. And it definitely does make a huge difference because you're providing your gut microbiome, with the food it needs to keep healthy to ward off invaders to keep pathogenic bacteria at bay, etc. So, all these things around improve gut health. It also helps with energy levels and helps with your serotonin levels.

 

Holly Howe if you're having gut issues, generally, you want to start slow. Even sometimes people will start with just the brine. And then work your way up to one or two forkfuls a day with one or two meals. So, you can eat the whole jar if you have good digestive system. And it's really, we don't need all that it's a condiment, we want to look more for a variety of different fermented foods versus downing the jar sauerkraut in one day.

 

Holly Howe you know, your doctors there for consulting, but you're the one that's coming in with what you need and asking for the help. And you have a lot of power.
